    September 2, 2014 - Compact tannins. The nose is full of wonderful spice notes and citrus peel. Really takes time to open up. Gains depth over the 2 days of drinking. Should come together in bottle and demands serious air if drinking now.

    July 12, 2014 - - Crimsom color with fast forming legs and aromas of raspberry. It's unbalanced with a light/medium body. Polished texture with a short finish - Thin and lacking complexity that I've come to appreciate in a quality Pinot.

    January 16, 2014 - Pretty red color with aromas of cherries and berries. Tastes of red cherries and berries, a delicate Pinot with good acidity and a good silky finish. Maybe a decant on the next one.

    July 13, 2013 - My prior notes were mis-entered. This wine is thin and a little sad. Not a great Sonoma coast wine. No flavor from terroir or structure.

    July 13, 2013 - A little light and jolly rancherish. Not my kind of Pinot. Fruit bomb
